Afforestation of non-agricultural land from the municipal fund of Sofia Municipality

VDK-1 LTD participated and won a tender for the award of a public procurement contract with the subject: "Afforestation of non-agricultural land from the municipal fund of Sofia Municipality and the subsequent cultivation of the crops" financed pursuant to the Contract for granting of financial aid under Measure 223 "Initial afforestation of non-agricultural land" of the Rural Development Program for the period 2007 - 2013, supported by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

The lands fall within soils with industrial contamination - mainly heavy metals (lead and arsenic). Most of the lands, in the territory of the town of Buhovo, as well as all the lands for afforestation in the territory of the Village of Yana, fall within an area with an increased admissible concentration.

The creation of new forest territories is a powerful tool for counteracting the previous environmental contamination  of the Kremikovtzi Metallurgical Plant and the future plant for processing of municipal waste in the area of ​​ the Village of Yana.
